U will get car in range of 3 to 5k. Car is cheap here

If ur driving license is old, then ur premium will be less little bit.

Car insurance can hit you hard if you are living in Ontario. Could range anywhere between $500 - $1000 per month. TD Bank gives one of the best insurance rates

Yes, car insurance in Ontario, specially in GTA will cost you arm and a leg. it is hugely expensive, specially Brampton is on top, I am taking various online quotations for 2001 Corolla, and the minimum I got is 535 $. which really keep you away from buying a car.

Other than GTA it is little cheaper e.g in London, Burlington, Hamilton, Oakville etc you mat get the same quote for 250-300$

Used cars can be bought cheap, a good 2001 corolla or civic can be bought between 2-3k. Mazda 3, 2004 can be bought between 3-5k
